2018’s Modular Building is an Awesome Retro Diner

Today LEGO announced the 2018 Modular set which will go on sale on January 1, 2018. The Downtown Diner (10260) will be the 3rd largest modular set following Assembly Square (10255) and the Brick Bank (10251).

I think the set looks fantastic, and it’s provoked a TON of discussion online. Will this Streamline Moderne style be found in future sets? Is teal the new black? Should the figures have the classic LEGO smiley face (this is the first modular with custom faces)? Is this a new direction for modulars?
